Our Djembes are traditionally handcrafted from Dugura Wood (latin Cordyla pinnata). The color varies from brown to darker tobacco. It is heavier and denser than the lingual wood also used. This is a prestigious wood of unmatched quality, found in Mali and Guinea.
The drums are coated with shea butter inside and beeswax outside to produce the shine.
Ropes are halyard pre-stretched polyester 5 mm in diameter (tricolor, bicolor or black)
The Drum Heads are shaved Goatskin
